Oh Baby! That's A Lot of Washing!

A couple of weeks ago, I got a lovely email from Kathy asking if I would be interested in joining them over at the Sketch File.  It took me a few seconds to decide so I'm now part of the team!

Here is this month's sketch to whet your whistle... I wonder where the inspiration came from?
While wondering what I could make, my mind kept coming back to this amazing card I saw on the talented Jacqueline's blog a good while back now.  I've CASEd her card but made it to fit this new sketch (if you squint!).

Do you recognise the little dresses?  They're the centre part of the Owl Punch, which I punched out of three different tones of pink card, together with the hearts.  Everything else was done free hand.

Pretty much everything on this card was made using snippets which means I can go and play on the swings in the virtual Snippets Playground.  I was lucky enough to win some ProMarker pens from the Headteacher last week so I'd better behave!

Ink: Basic Black marker pen
Card: Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Early Espresso, Whisper White
Paper: Old Olive from the Brights stack
Other: Owl Punch

Sorry I've been out of blogland for... almost a week?  How did that happen?!  I've been busy with all sorts of things but hopefully there should be some sort of normality descending now.  Thanks for all your well wishes for Socks.  He's eating normally now and sneezing less frequently... but he's still managing to make a nice snotty mess up my windows from time to time!

You'll have been getting withdrawal symptoms from lack of cat pictures, so I'd better make today's a goodie:

Thanks so much for visiting.  I look forward to seeing your take on the Olympic-inspired sketch!
